The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Germany on Saturday with UFC Fight Night “Arlovski vs. Barnett” (online betting). The famed Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany, will serve as the host location and the event will be headlined by a duel between two former UFC heavyweight champions.
Andrei Arlovski, who has enjoyed a resurgence in his pro fighting career recently, will look to continue his once-improbable journey back to a championship bout inside the Octagon. Standing in the Belarusian’s way will be Josh Barnett, one of the craftiest and dangerous heavyweights in the world. Light heavyweights Alexander Gustafsson and Jan Blachowicz will lock horns in the card’s co-featured bout.
At Friday’s weigh-ins, both Arlovski and Barnett came in looking svelte, easily making the heavyweight limit. “The Pit Bull” came in officially at 238 pounds while “The Baby-Faced Assassin” followed suit; he clocked in at 256.
Blachowicz tipped the scale at 205 pounds ahead of the biggest fight of his career. Not to be outdone, the hulking Swede, a former world title challenger, checked in at 205 pounds.
UFC Fight Night 93 will stream live on UFC Fight Pass starting at 11:45 a.m. ET/8:45 a.m. PT all the way through the event’s conclusion.
